Parking of the car

Rules of the parking of the car on a bias

General information

Leaving the car on the parking, surely you cock the parking brake. The parking brake has the pedal drive, the pedal of raising of the parking brake is located at the left in a driver's foot well. Remember that the control lamp of raising of the parking brake which is built in in an instrument guard, serves only for a reminder to the driver about need of his otpuskaniye before a start of motion. Activation of a control lamp does not guarantee completeness of raising of the parking brake.

On models with AT a transfer of the lever of the selector of ranges of the automatic transmission in situation "P" has to be made after raising of the parking brake. Such sequence of actions prevents casual start-off of the car and excludes transfer of considerable load of the mechanism of blocking of transmission from skatyvayushchy force car. Unloading of transmission provides at the subsequent start-off of the car ease of a conclusion of the lever from situation "P".

At the parking of the car on rise, develop forward wheels aside from a border and vice versa.

Before a start of motion, be convinced that the parking brake is completely released, - the handle of an otpuskaniye of the parking brake is located under the dashboard at the left. At the movement with not completely released parking brake the overheat and failure of brake mechanisms of back wheels is possible, besides, it can lead to violation of serviceability of functioning of ABS.

At the corresponding complete set the attempt of start-off from the place with the cocked parking brake brings to operation of the alarm buzzer warning the driver about need of an otpuskaniye of a brake.
